FOUNDATIONS OF PSYCHOANALYSIS

The Logic of the Unconscious and the Drive: Remarks on the Foundation of Psychoanalysis
André Michels

Saturday, February 6, 2021
10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
To register, click here


Lacan's logical investigations of the unconscious appear to be already at work in Freud's elaboration of The Interpretation of Dreams. The radical newness of psychoanalysis is to situate the unconscious in relation to the drive, as its ethical kernel; yet the amazing proximity, if not identity, in psychoanalysis of logic, ethics, and aesthetics is one anticipated by Wittgenstein.

Suggested Readings Freud: The Interpretation of Dreams (1900). Lacan: Seminar XIV, 1966-67, La logique du fantasme . Wittgenstein, Ludwig: Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1922).

André Michels is a psychoanalyst practicing in Luxembourg and Paris, and a member of the Après-Coup faculty. He is the co-editor of the Jahrbuch für klinische Psychoanalyse, editor of Actualité de l’hystérie, and author of numerous articles on psychoanalysis.
